Goals (Skills/Competences)

Helping the students to set up learning strategies.


Basic card / a post-it note / writing material /a laminating machine + laminating sheets (one for each student) / a colour printer / a pair of scissors

An internet connection to look for images and/or an images bank in the teacher’s computer


Question the students about the procedures / methods set up to study. Each student writes the strategies (s)he uses to study on a post-it note (only one per note). While putting up the post-it notes, gather in different categories (from SQ4R) the procedures / strategies. Sort the methods in chronological order = determine the order of the steps. Explain the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ (fill in the center column = functioning)Look for images to illustrate each operation. All the images are printed to get a recap bookmark.The material (recap sheet + bookmark) is printed, the bookmark is laminated – and cut out. The recap sheet is put in a methodological file.The student relates to the order of the procedures thanks to the bookmark and the methodological card.
